Fishing Reports

Thursday, July 10, 2014


Hello from Big Winni. The Walleye bite has gotten challenging. The higher water levels and faster run off has cleared the lake up more than normal..Also has kept water temps down in the upper sixty degree range . Fish have been caught deeper than in most years. Look to the basin areas in 25 to 40 foot of water. Mayflys are going well now with our 4rth hatch. Rigs and crawlers or leeches are working best at this time. When a plain rig does not turn a fish go to a spinner and half crawler with a bit more speed. Summer bait patterns are in full swing . Bite windows are short and several times a day. Paerch bite is good from the 12 foot line out . but with jigs and fat head minnows. Hunt around till you get the right size then sit on them . Seems just on the edge of the deeper weeds is the ticket. Plenty of pike to be had numbers in the 20 to 26 inch range. Trolled or bait fished . Most of them can be caught on the edges of weed lines from 8 foot out to 12 foot. Sunfish and Crappie are active at twilight periods. Most lakes around us including Big Cutfoot Little Cutfoot , Little Ball club Portage and Sucker lakes all are producing well now. Mornings till ten and evening from 7 till 10 pm. Time to go fishing see you on the Lake.

Hello from Big Winni. we are in a bit of a summer pattern walleye now. Several short bite windows lasting only 15 to 30 minutes. As the water warms the fish feed more often but not as long. The best bite has moved off shore as well. Bar and Hump fishing is going well now .Bena bar out to Long bar is ok. Moses and Snag hole west. Moxeys east side and out to the humps. north and west of Third river bar. Weed lines have very few fish in them unless it is raining or windy Perch action is ok in the mid depth range from 12 feet out to 25 feet of water. Jigs and fathead minnows. Look to Tamarac Bay for perch and Walleye in the river channell also.12 to 20 feet. Crappie and Sunfish are going well in Cutfoot and Little Cutfoot.. Some other area lakes to check are Portage , Six Mile or Little Ball club.

Hello from Big Winni. The Walleye bite is a bit different. You can catch fish rigging deeper water off humps and main lake bars now with leeches and crawlers. Look to 14 to 23 feet of water. Seems as cloudy misty rainy days are good walleye days. Trolling small cranks over main lake bar tops are producing ok in calmer sunny days. Moving at 1.8 to 3 mph. Shad raps or similar in the #5s or #7s. Weed line fish are there one day and not the next . It is worth a quick check as they are active in them. Rip jigs and shinners through them. Pike are going readily with you baits walleye fishing. Use bigger cranks if you want to target them though. Sunfish are going well in most area smaller lakes . Winni area look to Cutfoot Sugar lake and Little cut foot. Water is higher this year by almost 10 inches. Put that into your equation looking for your spots Perch have started going well off main lake shore drops in 10 to 15 feet of water. Jig and fatheads the best way to go. See you on the lake.
